Each year over 2,000 Heart Attacks are treated at St. Boniface Hospital. The Manitoba ACS Network is committed to improve outcomes in these patients. This network is tasked to ensure that Heart Attacks patients have guideline-based care optimally, consistently and safely administered throughout the province. Our network employs Recommended Standards, Algorithms, review of local protocols, partnering with EMS and reporting of key performance indicators to ensure quality. We have strong links to health care providers providing care to Indigenous patients to address their specific needs.
The ACS Network’s annual “Heart Attack Day” is designed to teach Manitoba physicians, nurses, pharmacists, allied health, cardiology technologists, paramedics and educators the optimal care of patients with Heart Attacks. Didactic lectures, workshops and panel discussions will be employed for this educational event.
